About Nicci Millar

Hello we are The Millar Family - Jonny, Anna, Jemima (looking grumpy in the pouch), Nicci - and we own and run Copperpot Cottage. Apart from a gorgeously cosy cottage, we have local knowledge which we'd be happy to share to help make your stay really special. Just ask.

Nicci Millar purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Nicci Millar chose Northern Ireland

Copperpot Cottage is a traditional-style Irish stone cottage and picture-postcard pretty.

It's in the heart of peaceful countryside - you wake up to only the sound of the birds singing. Yet, just a mile and a half away is Portrush.

The beaches are all soft sand with magical views towards the Scottish Isles and the coastal drives are spectacular. It's a lovely part of the world.

What makes this cottage unique

Even if its mid-summer, stoke up the magnificent wood burning stove, grab a glass of wine and enjoy the moment!

Guestbook comments from the owner

WINNER: Tripadvisor 2014 Certificate of Excellence.



Copperpot Cottage has consistently received 5* ratings from our guests. See their comments at http://www.copperpotcottage.com/guestbook.



Copperpot is the type of place you don't want to review to selfishly keep it a well kept secret. But it is so tasteful, homely and ideally located that it is difficult to resist that temptation. We have never stayed in a place that felt as much like a second home. Thank you to the owners for all the extra touches, from kids toys to milk and preping the fire.

— Jason and Maryann, 29 Mar 2015



We stayed at Copperpot Cottage over Christmas and New Year. It was fabulous and the kids loved the place. The Christmas tree and decorations were a lovely touch. We will be back!

— Michael Mulligan, 06 Jan 2015



We stayed at Copperpot cottage September 2014. What a beautiful cottage and beautiful part of the world. It was the perfect home from home, with everything we needed for our 1 year old. We'll be back for sure.

— Helen harte, 16 Oct 2014



Our family stayed at this cottage for a week in July 2014. We could not have stayed in a better holiday home, it was close to everything we wanted to do , 10 minute walk to shops and close to beach, great for children and families for a great holiday on the Antrim coast, Nicci greeted us with a warm welcome with fresh baked bread and wine which was a nice touch. The only regret we had was not booking for another week, Thank you Nicci and jonny x

— Lisa winters, 20 Jul 2014



We have just returned from a week at Copperpot Cottage. The cottage was amazing we were sorry to leave and could have stayed forever. The cottage was perfectly located for our first family holiday. Nicci and Jonny made us feel very welcome with some very thoughtful personal touches for both us and our baby. I will definitely recommend Copperpot Cottage to my family and friends and we look forward to a return visit with our second baby in the future.

— Diane and David Wilson, 15 Oct 2013



Had a lovely stay in Copperpot Cottage.

The cottage is surprisingly spacious but still very cosy. A real home from home and nothing was too much bother for Nicci.

I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone!

— Alan, 23 Sep 2013



3 days was not long enough to appreciate both the delights of this beautiful cottage and the wealth of local activities and wonderful scenery. Our host Nicci could not have been more welcoming. She and Johnny have done a great job providing everything you could possibly wish for in a holiday cottage, loved the big open plan kitchen and sitting room, didn't get chance to light a fire in the lounge next door, perhaps next time. Great to have 2 separate living rooms though. Best place we've ever stayed in.

We’re roughly an hour's drive from Belfast and 3 hours from Dublin.

Just go to our website www.copperpotcottage.com for a wealth of information about local attractions.

Portrush Harbour: There's a wide choice of eateries at the Ramore Complex.

For Summer season family fun, try Barry's amusements or Waterworld.

The East Strand, West Strand and Whiterocks beaches are all in the heart of Portrush.

Nearby Portstewart strand has a beach you can park on and a great eatery - Harry's Shack.

Here are some of the big local attractions:

Giant's Causeway: Legend has it that the giant, Finn McCool, created this geological marvel. It is a World Heritage Site and now has an impressive visitors centre to match. Tip: car parking charges might take your breath away, so park across the road at the Heritage Railway (also worth a ride).

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge: Spanning a chasm eighty feet deep, it is an exhilarating experience peering down through the wooden slats into the clear waters below. The coastal path offers stunning views of Rathlin and the Scottish Isles, as well as a noisy seabird colony.

Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery: Join a tour of the distillery to observe the craft of traditional Irish whiskey making and sample the goods too.

Ballintoy Harbour: A picture-postcard pretty harbour with a pocket-sized tea room and magical views. Much-loved by walkers, this is the most celebrated part of the Causeway Coast.

Whitepark Bay Beach: The spectacular sandy beach forms a white arc between two headlands including the tiny salmon-fishing village of Portbraddan. The beach is backed by ancient dunes rich in bird and animal life. Enjoy lazy summer days, picnics, making sandcastles and long walks along this truly beautiful beach.

Portrush is well known for its three sandy beaches, the West Strand, East Strand and White Rocks (blue flag), just a mile and a half from the cottage. They are popular with surfers and have several surf schools.

From personal experience, the bustling Ramore Wine Bar offers a broad, well-priced menu (children welcome) and 55 Degrees North is a good option for afternoon tea with great views (children welcome). Further afield, Tartine in Bushmills offers delicious food and an interesting wine list.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay in Copperpot and it was just as brilliant second time round. Our 4 year old calls it his "holiday house"! It is a well equipped comfortable cottage in a brilliant location, so close to Portrush and Portstewart and in a lovely quiet area. Nicci gave us a warm welcome with beautiful flowers, fresh bread and milk. I cannot recommend Copperpot enough, we will be back!!

Lovely Copperpot Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and myself, together with her sister and her husband, have just returned from a five night stay in this lovely cottage. Thank you Nicci for your warm welcome and supply of local bread, milk and bottle of wine which were very welcoming.

The cottage itself has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and we thoroughly recommend it.

Ideally situated just outside Portrush it is ideal for exploring Portstewart , Giant's Causeway, Ballintoy and Ballycastle and the rest of the north Antrim coast.

Thanks once again Nicci
